I admit it. I was skeptical of meal delivery services for a long time. But I’m a cook, I thought, I know how to make dinner! I don’t need someone else telling me what to do. Which is hilarious when I stop and think more about that statement, because of course there are days when I’m exhausted by five p.m. and cranky and completely tapped out in the creativity department…and I could really use the assistance. It was on a day just like this that Sun Basket came knocking on my door (okay, actually one of their representatives sent me a friendly email) and asked if I’d give their service a try for a week and take a few notes. But...I’m...a...cook! I thought again. I’d always assumed meal plans would be silly convenience foods, full of wilted vegetables and heavy on cheap starches. I assumed they’d be light on interesting vegetables and globally-inspired seasoning, catering to a salt & pepper, meat & potatoes crowd (oh, what a snob I was about all this, seriously).
I have never been so happy to be wrong.
